Description

A bombshell bookworm. A chronic Casanova. And a lesson in chemistry too scandalous for school.

When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she's determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother's gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

Will takes risks for a living, but he's skeptical about this challenge of Hanna's…until the wild night his innocently seductive pupil tempts him into bed - and teaches him a thing or two about being with a woman he can't forget. Now that Hanna's discovered the power of her own sex appeal, it's up to Will to prove he's the only man she'll ever need.

This book is about 50% sex...just saying...

STORY (romance) - Hanna selects her brother's best friend, Will, to help her lead a more balanced life with less emphasis on grad student work and more emphasis on having a little fun. What follows is how Will, a no-strings-attached player, becomes her "teacher" in the world of dating, sex and love. The story is well-written and enjoyable. Will is a very successful bad boy and hot as they get! Hanna is beautiful, smart, sweet and sexually inquisitive. Their relationship progresses from awkward to sensual and ultimately very sweet.

All this being said, I only rated the book a three because I like my books with more plot or character development and just a sprinkling of hot sex scenes...like maybe only 20 minutes of it in a 10-hour-book. While I wasn't counting, I'll bet there was probably five hours of sex in this book, which was way past my personal taste.

PERFORMANCE - The book alternated between a deep, sexy male voice reading Will's perspective and a young woman reading Hanna's. The performances were both very good.

OVERALL - Even though this is Book 3 in the series, the story stands alone. There is lots and lots of very explicit sex and sexual language as well. If you like a lot of hot, this is definitely the book for you!

5 Smoking Hot Stars!

I just love the Beautiful B* series. It's so hard to pick a favorite when it comes to these guys. I wasn't sure I would even like Will since he is such a player. However, he was so charming and honest that I couldn't help but fall for him. Like the other books in this series there is plenty of HOTNESS! Which is what I love best about this series. I just hope we get more from this fantastic writing duo.

another hot installment in the Beautiful series!

Honestly, this is a definite improvement from the first book. Beautiful Player is about Hanna and Will. We meet Will briefly in Beautiful Bombshell when the guys are in Vegas for Bennett’s bachelor party. He is successful, smart and handsome “player”- lives by his own rules and doesn’t want to commit to a serious relationship. Then he receives a phone call from his best friend’s little sister Ziggy aka Hannah. After meeting up for an early morning run the pair strike up a friendship and find themselves meeting up daily. The more time Will spends with Hannah the more he begins to doubt his own no strings attached lifestyle. Will was shocked to see that this little sister has actually grown to be a smart good looking woman and she wants him to be her dating coach. Hanna (“Ziggy”) has been focused on her career for a long time and needs someone to “teach” her how to improve her dating life.
I really liked this story. It is fun, sweet, HOT and interesting. Will and Hanna’s relationship is an absolute rollercoaster. They want each other but both of them make mistakes and are often insecure about their feelings. However their passion and attraction is just amazing!! The alternating views was perfect to ensure we knew just what each character was thinking, and helped guide the book to new depths. Each of these stories are filled with just the right combination of drama, sexual tension and chemistry, and Beautiful Player is a fantastic addition to the Beautiful Series. A complete must buy for any fan of romance with a heavy dose of smut.

Candy for my ears and Soul

Any additional comments?

candy :) This series is pure delectable candy, sweet and sugarcoated with just the right amount of sexy steam - Hanna aka "Ziggy" is in a slump, it seems like all she does is work and spend all her free time in the lab. Her family is concerned since Hanna has no social life. Hanna's brother Jenson encourages Hanna to reach out to Will. Will was Jenson's college best-friend and spent tons of time with Hanna's family when she was growing up. Hanna was the younger sister and spent her summer fantasizing about the older Will, but Hanna was not even on Will's radar. Will is a player....plain and simple. He's cocky, sexy, confidant and even has hook-ups(woman) he has scheduled days of the week with. Fans of the series will love this installment and adore Will. If you haven't read the series yet, what are you waiting for..... Dive on in and Enjoy !!

I forgot how good these were!!!

I almost pushed this book into my wishlist, I am kind of over insta love stories right now, but I'm SO glad I bought it! These books have the same sharp wit I remember from shows like the West Wing...it's quick, it's witty, it's cerebral, it's magical!

This is the story of Will, friend of Bennett and Max, stars of Beautiful Bastard, and Beautiful Stranger. Will is a scientist and he is a player...well as he puts it he has "friends" but no one he would introduce as a girlfriend. His best friend Jensen has a problem, his baby sister is so obsessed with her graduate program that she isn't acting 24, she's acting 74! She has no life, no interests outside of school, and Jensen wants Will to show her how to balance lab work and life. Will has known Hannah since she was 12, nice kid, glad to help his buddy out....too bad Hannah grew up to be soooo hot!

Hannah is a lab geek, she wears her brothers old sweatshirts and enjoys her time in the lab. When her father and brother suggest she get out and make friends and her brother suggests she call his buddy Will...well Hannah can think of worse people to hang out with than her 31 year old childhood crush! When they meet up and he calls her by her family nickname "ziggy" Hannah realizes this slice of man hunk doesn't even know her real name....okay well there went that fantasy!

The book is engaging and funny and had me laughing out loud and slapping my stearing wheel....some parts are just that good! I felt there was about 2 hours of made up miscommunication drama which annoys me, or I would have given it 5 stars. If you haven't started the series it is highly recommended if you like hot scenes with an excellent intelligent banter and a decent plot.

OMG...Left me breathless and shaking!

What did you love best about Beautiful Player?

Everything...I did not think it could get any hotter than Chloe and Bennett! The narration was to die for! I could not stop listening but I didn't want it to end. If you have loved BB and BS you will not be disappointed by BP.....

What other book might you compare Beautiful Player to and why?

This Beautiful Series are a genre all their own....

Which character – as performed by Grace Grant and Sebastian York – was your favorite?

Sebastian does a wonderful Hanna, my favorite of the listen.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I don't know...this listen has left me speechless!

Any additional comments?

Can it get any better????If it does I cannot wait for Beautiful Beginnings!

Will's my new favorite!

Would you listen to Beautiful Player again? Why?

Absolutely! I love Grace Grant and Sebastian York's narration of the characters! And, the story is amazing!

What did you like best about this story?

I love the interactions between Will and Hanna, as well as Will's personality. He seems like such a player, but he's really just a big softie :)

Which scene was your favorite?

Oh gosh...it's so hard to pick just one! Hmm, OH! it would have to be the scene at the party where Hanna leads Will into the bedroom. *fans self*

Who was the most memorable character of Beautiful Player and why?

Definitely Will. He was just so honest! If Hanna caught him staring at her chest, he didn't make excuses, he just told her why he liked them. He was patient with her, and even when her extremely frank comments would come out, he'd let her express herself. He never tried to limit her in any way. Even when she was breaking his heart.

THESE BOOK ARE SO WELL DONE, I LOVE THEM ALL..

Would you listen to Beautiful Player again? Why?

Oh I already have, and the reason, cause I don't want to miss one word of it. It's that good.

What other book might you compare Beautiful Player to and why?

It don't, it's the Will and Hannah story, and well done I might add.

Have you listened to any of Grace Grant and Sebastian York ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

yes, I have, and I think these two should do a lot of these book type of books together, they are great and who ever is writing books like these should beg these two to read them, They do amazing things to books of hot romance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes, and did so.. and then got up today and re-listened to it. It's that wonderful

Any additional comments?

This book and it's hard to say, may be my favorite.. and that is saying a lot. it's hard because I like the Max and Sara story as well.. but let me say, I waited for this to arrive knowing that once it got here, nothing was going to get done ANYWHERE as long as I got this book. This book had all of my attention and it was well worth it.. Amazing job to the Authors can't wait until you bring more of these two into our lives. Thank you Christina and Lauren. You are fabulous. This book was a home run..Take note: anyone that is writing, these ladies know how to write a Hot, funny, intelligent romance novel. It has it all. These are what we look for in books, Or I do. Outstanding job meeting Will and Hannah. I loved them.. First book I have listen to on Audible in a while, cause you just can't find this any more.. I love it. There are not enough stars to let people know it's that good and a wonderful book. And not enough books like these out there.. Not this good.. Only a handful of writers can write like this.. And I own all those books..

5++ STARS!!! I LOVED IT!!!

Superbly written, super hot, laugh till your sides hurt funny, and then some!!! I can't say enough great things about this story. I couldn't wait until it was released, because I am a true diehard fan of all things Christina Lauren, and every 'Beautiful' is an instant purchase for me. I hung on every word, and laughed out loud several times--in public--yes, I couldn't stop listening so I just didn't care if people stared. Hanna and Will--I ADORE these two, and the rest of the crew make me want to be a part of their little clique. If you haven't already listened to the 'Beautifuls', shame on you! Start from the beginning with Beautiful Bastard, download them all today, you will love yourself for it!
